From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Miracle Cycle (Japanese: ミラクルサイクル Miracle Cycle) is a shop that sells bicycles in Kanto and Johto. Initially beginning business in Cerulean City, Miracle Cycle movedGSC/expandedHGSS to Johto after about three years, with a second shop in Goldenrod City, where they became popular with the help of the player.
It has no apparent presence in Hoenn, Sinnoh, or Kalos where Rydel's Cycles, Rad Rickshaw's Cycle Shop, and Cycle Shop dominate business, respectively.
The company name was not mentioned in non-Japanese versions of any games it has appeared in for unknown reasons. Instead, it is simply named Bike Shop.
In the games
The Cerulean branch can be visited in the Generation I games and Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, where a bicycle is on sale for 1,000,000. As the player can only carry 999,999 at one time, this makes it impossible to buy. However, several vouchers for the expensive bicycle have been given away; the player can obtain one from the Chairman of the Pokémon Fan Club in Vermilion City and trade it in for the bicycle instead.
In the Generation II games, this branch of Miracle Cycle is shut down. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, however, the shop is still open, though nothing is obtainable here.

The Goldenrod branch can be visited in the Generation II games and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, where the owner will give the player a bicycle for free temporarily so that he or sheCHGSS can advertise the shop, stuck in an isolated corner of the city, to the people of Johto. After a certain amount of riding on the bicycle, the owner will call the player via the Pokégear, allowing him or her to keep the bicycle as thanks for bringing in so much customers.
In the Generation II games, it is mentioned that the owner moved from Cerulean City, shutting down the old shop in the process, while in the remakes, he recommends that the player visit the still-open shop in Cerulean.
